Summary

Sacramento attorney Timothy Kassouni founded Kassouni Law on the belief that property rights and personal freedom are intertwined. He passionately considers it his duty and mission to rigorously defend property rights against government and private abuse. Mr. Kassouni has many years of experience litigating against private and public entities at all levels of court, including the United States Supreme Court, the California Supreme Court, the California Court of Appeal, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to name a few. His litigation expertise in land use, appeals, business, and property rights law has led to legal victories and the setting of legal precedents throughout the state of California. Born in New York, and later spending parts of his childhood in both the California Central Valley and Los Angeles, Mr. Kassouni has a history of interaction with clients from all walks of life, from small farmers to large commercial developers. Further, one could say Mr. Kassouni’s legal career began on the school playground, where he often defended classmates from bullies. An instinct that survives to this day. Mr. Kassouni worked as an attorney for some of California’s most prestigious legal organizations before founding his own law firm in 2009 including the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office, the Pacific Legal Foundation, and the Zumbrun Law Firm (Ronald A. Zumbrun). While at the Zumbrun Law Firm, Mr. Kassouni served as both senior attorney and legal director to the firm. His legal experience includes complex land use, Constitutional property rights, appeals, business, real estate, and construction litigation in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange and Sacramento Counties. Mr. Kassouni also completed a judicial externship for Justice David N. Eagleson of the California Supreme Court in 1988. Education Mr. Kassouni is a Loyola Law School graduate with an undergraduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley.
